What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 278: Desserters*


*Misspelling intentional

Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

I’ve got a wicked sweet tooth lately, but I’m (mostly) resisting the urge to indulge. So I thought I’d instead post about the things about which I’m dreaming (and a few related nightmares).

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

Anyone care to snack on a well-hung bicuspid?
I’m normally not a fan of fudge. It’s typically too heavy for me. But this Key Lime version with the Graham Cracker crust is giving me the flutters! By JuliesGourmetFudge
I get it. She’s a fondant gymnast. But all I can see is this.
‘Cat-lover candy.’ Probably tastes as good as it looks.
I have never heard of dandelion jelly candy, but this looks delicious! By ZSIndrani

If you must break up with me, you should totally do it with a cake. But it should be a much, much bigger cake, okay? By SugarCoatedTruths
I’d rather get the breakup cake.

  1. Not tempted one bit, or should that be bite?

  2. This reminds me of learning about Turkish Delight. Never knew and wondered about it from reading Narnia. Well last year when my grandson’s class was reading The lion the Witch and the Wardrobe I found that Vermont Country Store offered a tin of Turkish Delight. Ordered…Well I just had to pull out one little,and they were little,bite…Delish !The kids loved it.

  4. Oh my –

    – As offputting as that rat cake might seem, I think it actually looks delicious – very chocolatey and great texture.
    – Those Peppa Pig cookies … erm … let’s just say they don’t look kid-appropriate.
    – I am so. over. the poo emoji. I thought it was juvenile the first time and I haven’t become any more fond of it.
    – I’m hoping those dandelion gummies have a sweet herby flavor – either way I’m curious!
    – Lemonade marshmallows sound AMAZING! (Use as a chaser after a vodka shot :D)

    Those are just my initial reactions – thanks for posting!

  5. I am terrible with fudge. I absolutely cannot resist it no matter what I do. I, therefore, choose not to buy it. I’ve got will power around other sweet things but not fudge and maybe not chocolate raisins. I had the exact same thought about that fondant gymnast. Finally, not going to lie, I wouldn’t be disappointed if someone made me a chocolate plague rat cake. Bubonic plague is one of my areas of interest.

  6. Anyone who buys desert from Etsy deserves what they get.

    • I confess I have had some big hits (and some disappointing misses) from Etsy’s dessert offerings, but it’s always an adventure. If you only try one edible from Etsy (and you like pepper), try the Baccus Lollipops from PamplemousseSucre (when they return from hiatus). It’s a combination of merlot, dried cherry, and cracked pepper, and it’s mindblowing.


  7. All those look delish except for the poops, but I’m still stuck on the well hung bicuspids…😳🤣
